Jude 17-25

Jul 31, 2022    Daniel Pernell

Jude has explained in various ways the apostasy (abandoning the faith) of antinomianism. Antinomianism is the wrong belief that, because of Christ’s work on the cross, Christians are no longer required to obey the commands of Scripture. The belief holds that because we are “not
under law but under grace” (Romans 6:14), we do not have to live in accordance with it. Paul’s response is succinct: “What then? Are we to sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means!” (Romans 6:15) and “What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace
may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it?” (Romans 6:1-2)
